This will be especially helpful for New York City and Long Island homeowners who pay some of the highest energy expense bills for utilities in the country.

The loans under this new program can be used for new heating systems, installing energy efficient windows and adding insulation to walls and attics by homeowners. Homeowners who qualify for this program can borrow up to $25,000 at interest rates between 5-7%. There are 18 institutions throughout the United States who will process these home loans. It is anticipated that more than 30,000 loans will be made in the next three to four years under this program.
